Un-tag

verb; affixation
To dislike the way one looks in a digital photograph and say that they will later remove their label from that photo once it has been uploaded to the social networking site “Facebook.com”
 
This term--a blend of "un" and "tag," was created based on the social networking Web site, Facebook.com. However, it now applies to all situations in which digital photographs make a person look unattractive or inappropriate.
Etymology : Affixation of un ‘not’ + tag ‘children’s game of touch.’ In this case, ‘tag’ has been used to describe how pictures of individuals’ faces are labeled on Facebook by ‘touching’ the faces with the computer mouse. Therefore, ‘un-tagging’ refers to the act of removing one’s label.
